Microlink was founded 30 years ago on the grounded principles of people focused solutions to overcoming barriers to working and learning.
The company was set up with a focus on supporting Higher Education students with disabilities by two entrepreneurs with disabilities themselves. Through the nineties, Microlink executives played a leading role in the evolution of DSA (Disabled Student Allowance).
Attention then turned to transforming the process of Workplace Adjustments.
Using the social model of disability as a guiding compass, Microlink pioneered the streamlining of assessment solutions and support (through the development of expert triage), introducing fast track solutions with standardized packages, reducing costs and driving up quality, supported by business processes that enabled the on-boarding of multi-national corporate clients to exacting standards and timelines, all to the benefit of any person with a disability in the workplace.
In 2011 CEO Dr Nasser Siabi was awarded an OBE for his contribution in helping over 300,000 disabled people transition from education into work. By 2023, the number has risen to well over 500.000.
